Forge Industrial Staffing was founded in 1995 by Richard DeTamble and John Janisch who had a vision of a different kind of staffing company – one that was built on relationships and focused on the needs of the industrial client and employee. This unwavering focus, coupled with a top-notch staff, has been the basis for our success.

Since opening our first office in Elkhart, Indiana, Forge has grown at a tremendous pace and now operates 12 offices throughout Indiana and Michigan. Forge has been in each of its markets for over 18 years or more giving us the advantage of knowing the intricacies of the industrial landscape in those markets from both the client and employee’s perspectives.

As a dedicated partner to your success, Forge Industrial Staffing is committed to being the most responsive staffing supplier in the industry. Our mission is to provide professional recruiting services to companies that align with not only our own business values but the values of candidates we provide them. We work with reputable employers to give you the opportunity to showcase your skills and find your next great career. No matter where you are in your job search, whether you’re just starting out or you’re just looking for a better opportunity, Forge Industrial Staffing has positions to meet every need.
